23/1961 or 28/1961 is an exhibition inspired by the possibilities of a missing sculpture made by Julian Henry Beck (1914-2012) a Midlands based artist, engineer and photographer. The sculpture was purchased by Nuneaton Museum in the 1960s and accessioned into their permanent collection but has since disappeared, leaving behind only a truncated record of its description and location.
The artists included in the exhibition were selected from an open call that invited responses to make new works based around the data available about the sculpture.

Open Submission Selected Artists for BOM Exhibition
I'm pleased to announce that I'll be working with the following artists as part of the JHB Archive 23/1961 or 28/1961 exhibition at BOM in September.
Kate V Robertson
Katherine di Turi
Tete de Alencar
The artists have been selected by a panel consisting of Caitlin Griffiths, Myself and Karen Newman from an open submission opportunity funded by Arts Council England's Grants for the Arts.
The selected artists work in a diverse range of media and all artists presented a high quality and original proposal which responds to the brief of a sculpture belonging to JHB that was lost by Nuneaton Museum and now exists only as the data stored on the accession record, until September when the sculpture will be reimagined in 20 new forms.
The exhibition opens with a preview at BOM (Birmingham Open Media), 1 Dudley Street, Birmingham on 10th September from 6-8pm then runs from 11th September – 3rd October 2015.
Museum of London workshops
I'll be leading a workshop in pinhole photography this Saturday, 18th July at Museum of London as part of events surrounding their exhibition of work by Christina Broom, one of the first female photojournalists working at the turn of the century.
The workshop will give participants an insight into the techniques Broom was using as well as providing an opportunity for you to make and photograph with a cardboard pinhole box camera. The negative images produced will then be printed using both analogue and digital smartphone techniques.

Swiss Cottage Gallery Pinhole photography workshop
I'll be running a free Pinhole photography workshop at Swiss Cottage Gallery as part of Cityread London on Sunday May 16th 2015. Come along for a chance to make your own camera using recycled materials and photograph the area around the gallery using slow exposures to create a ghostly vision of London which links with Cityread's focus on Ben Aaronovitch's 'Rivers of London'.
